This was my first experience being away from home at college and overall it was great! I enjoyed the college campus scene which gave me a little home feeling. The grass is green and freshly cut in the spring, there are tons of clubs and events being offered. Students and faculty are diverse and very friendly however the one thing I would change is making Transfer Evaluation Day earlier in the time before the semester starts so students have ample time to change their schedule if needed.
Review CUNY Brooklyn College
Brooklyn College is one of the senior colleges in the City University of New York. It has a robust science program, as many of the science professors in the college came from prestigious schools across the nation. Furthermore, it has a dedicated pre-health advisor for students who are considering a career in the health industry. The college also has various liberal arts programs. In fact, it is currently constructing a new building dedicated to the performing arts. Although the programs and courses offered through the college are great, the administration is not as efficient as one might hope. To take advantage of all the resources at Brooklyn College, you need to make connections with the administration. In addition, the food in the cafeteria is not that great. Fortunately, there are various food options outside of campus that you can choose from. Additionally, the college does not have its own dorms since it is a commuter school.
Brooklyn College is a very focused academic institution. Especially during fall semester, students are mostly interested in getting their work done due to cold weather conditions. In the spring semester the environment is more interesting as there are more activities which allows students to interact with each other and build connections. The professors are fair. It would help one if office hours are attended as it helps know the professor more professionally. It also helps understanding the assignment and the grading rubric. Overall, Brooklyn College is a really nice college to in New York City.
